Fantastic antipodean drama/comedy
This show is fantastic. Simple as that. I'm usually smiling like a fool during it it's that fun, and along with several acclaimed American series, is one of the best series' I've watched. It's just as good as Six Feet Under (though with less dead people, and ghosts!). In fact, it wouldn't be too dissimilar from a certain "Sex and the City". It contains the same sort of drama and humour (hopefully that didn't put anyone off!).

Set in Australia, it centres on 8 20-somethings who all live in the same apartment complex in St Kilda, Victoria. These are Jason [lawyer], Richie [actor], Will [brick layer], Miranda [actor], Gabrielle , Alex [Doc], Evan [writer]and Kelly [Events Co-ordinator]. Of this rag tag bunch of Aussies, the last two characters give insightful, and wry, commentaries concerning themselves and each other. And they do the usual things you'd expect. Fall in love with each other, bosses, flatmates, or other members of their sex, and make it funny and moving.

At first, it may take a while to understand who loves/fantasises about who and maybe the Aussie humour and drama may not be for everyone ("love it or hate it" as its most often been described) but honestly, it should grow on you, and if you already like lighthearted dramas, look out for this one (Hey, the Aussies can export more than just Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman).
